Editing my Novel: Day 1

As I begin editing my novel, I'm going to post short but regular updates on my progress. Public accountability is a wonderful thing, don't you agree?  :-)

Today was Day 1, and I accomplished a lot. I managed to edit all of chapter 1, a chapter which currently sits at 3,209 words. I was already happy with this chapter, but it definitely needed some tightening up. So...I tightened it. :-)  I'm pleased with the final result, and so this chapter will most likely be the one I release for free to get people excited about my book.

That's it for tonight. After four hours of editing, I'm ready to get in bed with my Kindle Touch and read Streams of Silver until my eyes won't stay open.

Good night!
